I think you guys are right on.....The Rambler is jealous !!!!!!!!!! hehehehehe

I did hose off the radiator and we went on a bonding cruise. I told him i would get him a new battery and he is still the #1 AMC here at Ollie MotorSports. There is nothing wrong with the radiator. All was a success !!! 

"The Rambler" and Ollie are big buddies again..........

Here we are both showing off the trophy that we won at the Florida Mopar Show in Ocala, Florida last November. 1st place in the AMC Division.

It was great to see you again and you very nice driver Rambler. That was the first show we have ever taken our car to that we did not win a trophy. But I am not there to win trophy’s. We are having our show in Daytona March 22-24 spread the word so maybe we can get some new cars and a lot of cars there.

I got all shook up at "The Rambler" today.

Tomorrow is the first local car show of the season in Brookhaven, Mississippi and we are going. I went over to the local gas station to fill up so i would not have to mess with it early tomorrow morning. 

Filled the car and cranked up. I noticed the tack wasn't working...heck...everything on key accessory from the ignition switch is out of commission.  Confused

I came home and got my meter out. I put in two new fuse boxes a few years ago. One is battery hot and the other is key hot. Meter says no juice to the key hot box. Popped out the ignition switch and meter says it's  dead at the accessory position. 

I wiggled the wire and the nut on the terminal was tight but the wire seem loose in the crimped connector, so i replaced it. Turn on the key and had power. Put the switch back in and no power. 

Well i lost interest and worked on "The 69" for awhile.

The switch is still bugging me so i went and played more. This time it worked good. Put it all back together and all is ok now. 

I think the switch is going bad. I see one one E bay so I think i will order it and have one on hand anyway. I hope is makes it to Brookhaven and back tomorrow. 

Having AMC Fun,
Ollie

Been chasing "Gremlins" in my American electrical wiring.......{haha...AMC Joke !!}

The 69 has been on the lift so I can work on the doors, so as a result I had to move The Rambler everyday. My electrical problem returned, no power to my accessory fuse box.

My ignition switch arrived and I was going to change it out. Removed the switch from the dash and for one last time I put a volt meter on the accessory post and had 12 volts. Nothing at the fuse box.

I pulled out the wire that runs from the switch to the fuse box. When I added the new fuse box a few years ago I had to splice in some additional wire. I could wiggle the connection area and lose continuity thru it. I have found the Gremlin !!!!!!!!!

Replaced the wire and we will see what happens. Big car show in town this weekend so we will be going back and forth Fri, Sat & Sun so it should be a good test. 

Having AMC Fun,
Ollie
